Meet John Doe (Film) Review

Straight into my review today, as I’m in no mood to fuck about. (My idols are dead and my enemies are in power). Jill chose this old school number for our final film in December, part of a mixed up month, if we’re honest. I wouldn’t want it any other way though. Hang on a sec, just getting another Baileys. Right, let us begin. *Spoilers* Meet … Read More Meet John Doe (Film) Review

Blue Jay (Film) Review

I had a One That Got Away for years. In my more retrospective moments, I would think about what had happened to him, and what life would have been like if we had acted on our desires and gotten it on (We both had partners, alas. Mine was a raging fuck head). Luckily for me, fate decided to throw me a bone and we found … Read More Blue Jay (Film) Review

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (Film) Review

A Christmas B-movie? Where do I sign? Surely the only thing better than that would be a Christmas Shark Movie? I’m going to spare you the preamble this time around, just to say this was on Jill’s movie bucket list and I own it (for some reason) on DVD. To the movie! *Spoilers ahead* Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964) Director: Nicholas Webster Stars: John … Read More Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (Film) Review

Sunset Boulevard (Film) Review

Inspired by the pseudo-vintage vibe of our last pick, Jillian and I landed on the idea of another hybrid month. Don’t worry, this isn’t quite as wacky as Ewan McGregor Vs Pinhead month, though that was frankly inspired. No, this is classy. This is old movies vs. Christmas movies, preferably combined. Okay, really it’s a very loose theme with no firm rules. We’ll watch … Read More Sunset Boulevard (Film) Review

Grand Piano (Film) Review

As is so often the way, Sunday movie time came around this weekend and I wasn’t ready. Jill’s original movie choice wasn’t easily available to me so she had to pick an alternative. I’m kind of glad in a way because I’d never heard of this movie and, despite it tooting itself as a Spanish thriller, it’s kind of a no-brainer and was therefore, … Read More Grand Piano (Film) Review

Appropriate Behaviour (Film) Review

This movie has been on my Netflix list for a while and when better to bring it out that during Free for All month? Right? I won’t lie but the fact it was written and directed by a woman appealed, plus the same woman plays the central character. How very Lena Dunham/Phoebe Waller-Bridge of her. No beating around the bush, let’s jump straight in. … Read More Appropriate Behaviour (Film) Review

Excuse My French (Film) Review

Jill sold this week’s pick to me like this: “There’s an Egyptian movie called Excuse My French that might be good? It’s about a boy moving to a new school in Egypt and being the only Christian there. Don’t worry, it’s a comedy.” Well, first of all, girl knows me so well, she’s already anticipating me turning my nose up at a seemingly ‘boring’ … Read More Excuse My French (Film) Review

No Men Beyond This Point (Film) Review

Welcome to Blog Free & Die Hard with a Vengeance month. We’re basically feeling too lazy to think of a theme and anyway, these free for all months let us visit the films on our lists that don’t necessarily fit in a box. Or are really shit I chose this week’s film because my good personal friend Meghan (of The Lightle Side of Life) has … Read More No Men Beyond This Point (Film) Review

I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (Film) Review

First of all, the prize for the greatest movie title goes to this pick, which was mine sort of but more Jillian’s because Netflix kindly released it just in time for Halloween and she’s been so looking forward to it. It was therefore a no-brainer that this would be our last Halloween movie of the month! (I’ve a feeling we might stretch this a … Read More I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House (Film) Review

Nightbreed (Film) Review

Jill and I are big fans of Hellraiser, arguably Clive Barker‘s most recognisable work to date, and so I was pretty stoked to be dipping back into his world with this, a film I’d never seen before. (He also wrote Candyman (1992) which I bloody love with all my heart). I don’t really want to give too much away in the first paragraph but I … Read More Nightbreed (Film) Review

The Tenant (Film) Review

No preamble on this week’s pick (which is mine), only to say – fookin’ hell, I think I might be all horrored out for a few days. Whether you consider this horror or not is up to you, I guess it’s technically a psychological thriller but who even cares, eh? The result is the same. (I’m tired). Fun fact though, this is the last in … Read More The Tenant (Film) Review

Berberian Sound Studio (Film) Review

Week 2 of Halloween 2016 Month and we visit a very unusual place this time around. This film is definitely a head-scratcher, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Before we dip in I have to say that I’m not sure if my copy of the film should have had subtitles or not. It definitely did not, therefore I never truly followed what half the characters … Read More Berberian Sound Studio (Film) Review
